Guys Please help, 02 out of my 04 parrots are showing symtoms of swim bladder disease. I have tried served them peas, added salt no improvment. They are with me for more than a year now, it is the first time i am expereincing swim related problems.
I have 2 parrot fish, (The red parrot fish) but one is biting each other... SO IF YOU PLEASE HELP me what do I have to do? Only one is biting and the other one is not biting at all, I don't know whats going on. I don't know, but I am soo afraid if one of them is injured as I don't know if one of the parrot fish came up ... The upper fin is tore up by another. please help me. what should i do? My aquarium size is 2ft*1ft.
Emergent, fast growing plants are good for dealing with nitrates in the water. I'm using lucky bamboo successfully. Has anyone found any other effective emergent plants?
Hi all. I have been away for awhile...hope everyone is well. Anyway, to refresh...I have four large blood parrots (8-9 inches) 2 are 8 and 2 are 7 years old.
Just noticed that my parrot has black lips can any one help with what it could be
I dont know if I wrote in my last couple of posts that my Parrots, well the females anyway, are egg laying machines. The male will hang with both females when they are laying eggs but he is definitly paired up with this one girl who has become a very successful egg layer. I bought this new cave thing that the both of them have been in for the past two days and I dont know for sure yet but I think they might be on the verge of a successful breed. Theres about fifty eggs being extremely well protected and they appear to be getting larger.
I got a lovely female about two weeks ago, and while she's awfully sweet and gentle, she is VERY timid.
Before I go on, she's in perfect health, her color is bright, eyes are clear, she's eating fine. It's just every time I walk past the tank, or even when the dogs walk past the tank, she takes off like a bat out of hell for one of her caves. :/
I found another reason why Ive never seen eggs before, they blend in with my gravel! The eggs that are being laid are clear to an off white. I guess the eggs are coming out bad from the get go because all these guys are doing is eating them. It seems like a whole lot of trouble to go through with all the preparing just to eat the eggs. I think they probably dont plan on eating them but if there is something wrong with them then they do eat them.
A while ago I posted having to return one of my Parrots, a male, for overly aggressive behavior towards all of my fish (during an egg laying situation with his mate) Well, the same thing is happening with this other guy! Its weird because I had four Parrots, two of them orange and two of them this yellow kind of color. It turns out both orange fish are definitly females and these yellow types are both male.
